The skull looks wierd to me but I am no pro...
The skull has a piece of white cloth inserted behind it. That is why the eyes and nose appear white.
I was speaking about the skull overall, it doesnt look orginal to me it looks like a cast remak but ilike I said I really dont know for sure
These are not very common, a stunning piece in my opinion.
Agreed, I dont think I've ever seen one! Interesting "brimless-design". I'm in love..IMO .Thanks very much for posting! Let us see what FB or BenVK says.
From the images, I have my doubts as to the authenticity of this piece. The piece appears to be brand new showing no age or wear. The totenkopf appears to be a reproduction. I have seen two original examples of this cap and both were marked different in the inside. I have never seen or heard of one with a RZM tag. FB can likely tell us if this hat was available through official sources under RZM control.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
Never seen one marked like this.
I agree with Bob.
Never handled an original but I can say with some certainty that the sweatband, although of period manufacture, is not original to this Kratzchen. The same applies to the lining.
